We enjoyed the hotel and the breakfast. However, there was total confusion about the cost per room. It changed from 175 euro to 95 euro for a single room per night and 105 per person sharing to 105 per double room. I had to insist on my first quote of the cheaper prices so be very careful. They seem to... More

Went for a night away with nine work colleagues. Arrived around 6.00pm. We were warmly welcomed and dealt with efficently by reception staff. I had requested a single room which I found to be exceptionally clean and bright. Had a view of nearby castle. Dinner was booked and again we were not dissapointed. The staff were extremely friendly and efficent.... More

We had a Castle View room which was wonderful. We were able to watch Kilkenny Castle during all parts of the day. The staff was very nice and extremely helpful. Their breakfast buffet was included and had a great variety. When in Kilkenny this will be our hotel of choice.

Our family of 12 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 children have just spent a lovely weekend in the Rivercourt hotel. I cannot compliment your restaurant staff enough for the way they looked after us, especially the small children. The evening manageress ( I didn't get her name) was an absolute diamond. We were celebrating a birthday and the birthday girl... More

We have stayed here many times in the last few years. We like this hotel because it's right in the centre of Kilkenny. We stayed here in May this year because we were attending a wedding locally. It suited me fine because I could walk to Ciaran O Gormans salon in the morning to get my hair and make up... More

Had a great break away from it all in River Court hotel sitting out on terrace until late just chatting under heaters & watching world go by.. All the staff we encountered were friendly & helpful. Just two suggestions though: we could have done with a bottle of water in the room & the TV channels were poor. It wouldn't... More

Rooms were quite large and the hotel is a great base for exploring Kilkenny. We stayed here on Good Friday, so even thought you can't drink alcohol at other restaurants, the hotel allowed guests to drink in the lobby bar until the early hours of the morning. I would definitely stay here again if we go back to Kilkenny

Modest and clean rooms. Hotel is very fancy and may not be the best fit for younger kids. Views from the restaurant are amazing!! Staff is very helpful. If it is nice out I could only imagine sitting outside by the river to enjoy the views of the castle.
